J to attend. life's Sunny Side. it is a common supposition that truth telling is frequently painful, but In most instances it clears the at mosphere and, in , the end, restores cheerful feelings. Here is an Instance: This summer, at one of the most popu lar resorts down at the eastern end of Long Island, there was a rumpus late one night. It was an Innocent kind or affair. A large party in the hos telry took occasion . to celebrate a wedding In some place outside of the hotel, and, on returning, continued the revelry in the halls by rolling cro quet balls down the stairways. As the bouse was large, this kind of mer riment did not disturb many of the guests, and they slept through the racket peacefully. One woman, how ever, did not accept the noise in a spirit of charity; she robed herself and went into the hall and complained oud arid long, n language not distin guished for elegance of diction, for about an hour, of the conduct of the revelers. The result was that she awoke averybody within the sound of her voice, and there was general un happiness. Next morning the hus band of the woman was at the break fast table, ' No one at the table knew that it was his wife who was- tha nightingale of a few hours before, and it happened that a well known Brook lyn ite, a physician, sat opposite to him. The talk ran on the occurrences or the night, and the unknown hus band proclaimed in no uncertain tones that the disturbance had been an u warranted outrage on the other guests. "Yes,"8aid the physician, "1 quite afree with you. The only thing that I heard was a talking woman. Gre t grief I didn't you hear her ? Why she vould talk the leg off from an iron kettle I I just wish that I bad been her husband for about three minutes. What she needed was a good thump ing I" There was silence for a minute, and then every one broke out laughing. The husband blushed and stammered and kept his peace, for he was a nice man. There was no reason for apol ogies, nor regrets, nor words it bad all been said; and everybody felt bet terbecause the woman was not there. If she had been, then it is likely that this story would not have written. Brooklyn Eagle. Wreck on the Rock Island.
